Held on 11-12 December 2014
Over 70% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. This rapid urbanisation presents both an extraordinary challenge and a remarkable opportunity to improve welfare, drive sustainability, promote inclusive growth and revolutionise the very notion of government. The conference generated discussions that take on the biggest and most important of these challenges.
“Flourishing cities” explored big new ideas and showcased examples of innovative practice in government and public policy around the world. It sought new ways to tackle the impacts of rapid urbanisation across the world and address the challenges of meeting the needs and aspirations of citizens.
